CREATIVE SPOTLIGHT

Interviewed by Daniel Sangermani

"There are positives

and negatives with every

job and industry, but I

always try to remind myself

that modeling is such an

amazing opportunity."

KIA LOW

Photographer DANIEL SANGERMANI Model KIA LOW

Makeup & Hair NADINE JOHNS-ALCOCK Styling HARRISON SANDEMAN-STREW


XANDERMAG 32


XANDER MAGAZINE: What’s your

background in modeling? When and why did you

get started?

KIA LOW: My first “almost” modeling job was at

my high school’s fashion show. I was then selected

for “Australia’s Next Top Model Top 100” and was

later placed into Tamblyn agency in Brisbane. Soon

after, they signed with Next overseas.

XM: What led you to want to be a model?

KL: I always had an interest in the fashion industry

but never in my wildest dreams did I think it would

eventuate into something so big and real. I now

model because I love learning and experiencing the

cultures of the places I visit. I also want to make my

future self proud–how cool will it be to be old and

wrinkly, showing photos and telling stories about

“the good old days to grandkids…am I getting ahead

of myself?

XM: Have you attended fashion modeling

courses?

KL: I had private walking lessons with Tamblyn.

XM: How would you describe your style?

KL: I definitely opt for loose clothing rather than

tight. My closet contains a lot of strong, structured

black pieces, but I also have a few colorful outfits for

when I am feeling girly.

XM: Where do you generally shop?

KL: I like to shop around before I decide to

commit, but my go-to shop definitely has to be Zara.

XM: What is your nutrition like, and how often

do you workout?

KL: Usually I am not a lover of the gym or clean

eating, BUT when preparing for Fashion Week or

an important job, I try to go to the gym every day or

two for about an hour–just cardio and light weights.

Or Pilates is always nice. Along with going to the

gym, I try to eat light and clean–loads of berries,

salads, vegetables, and lean meat.

XM: You have had the chance to travel a fair bit

over the last couple of years. What is your favorite

city to work in? And to live in?

KL: I have loved all the places I have visited! They

are all so amazing in different ways. The place I

have spent the most time would have to be NYC.

I love its energy – you never feel alone; shops are

always open. Whenever you have the day off and

have no plans, all you have to do is step outside, and

something will draw your eye.

XM: Describe the atmosphere when you’re on a

shoot. Do you play music?

KL: Usually if you’re in a studio, there will be music

on a shoot. I find it a lot easier on shoots when the

photographer puts music on that is reflective of the

vibe or concept for the shoot. It makes it so much

easier to get into character.

XANDERMAG 34


XM: Do you talk with the photographer between

shots?

KL: You always talk to the photographer during

shoots. If you make a nice, happy relationship with

them it makes it less awkward and [makes for] a fun

day. A good photographer is one that knows their

lighting, tells you a brief before you start shooting,

takes a stream of photos (not stopping to look at

every one), gives some advice on ideas or if you

should angle yourself differently.

XM: What do you think distinguishes a good

model from a bad one?

KL: A good model is one that is healthy, happy,

nice, and cheerful, a model who everyone likes

spending time with; nothing’s worse then spending

a day on set with someone gloomy or someone not

talkative.

XM: What are your goals as a model?

KL: My goal as a model is to do the best I possibly

can while being happy, healthy and grounded.

XM: What is fun and rewarding about modeling?

What do you dislike about modeling?

KL: Love: you get to travel, meet cool people and

you get the opportunity to be apart of a world so

many people don’t get a chance to be apart of or

don’t understand.

Dislike: the industry doesn’t understand the

concept of sleep.

XM: Is there anything you dislike about the

fashion industry?

KL: The one thing about fashion is that it is forever

changing, which makes it hard to know what’s

around the corner. This can be exciting, but the one

thing I wish is that you knew what was around that

corner in advance.

XM: How has modeling changed your life?

KL: I feel like by modeling, I, as an individual, have

grown. I have learned how to be independent and

[how] to manage my finances. I have also learned

more about myself – what I think is right and

wrong, which I think is most important.

XM: What advice do you have for other aspiring

models?

KL: Nothing comes easy, but once it starts coming,

it will be a crazy ride; so hold on tight, go with it, and

be true to yourself.

XM: Do you have any exciting projects coming

up?

KL: This industry is so unpredictable you never

know what jobs are coming up until the day before.

From the Hollywood

starlets of the 1950’s

to the runway models

of 2015, red lips and

cat flicks are classic

trends that always

seem to stay current.

Here is a step–bystep

tutorial to help

you achieve that

sultry glamour of

the 1950’s pin up girl,

any day or night.

XANDER beauty 60


Beauty Tutorial

1

Step 1: The Base

Over clean, moisturized skin, apply illamasqua skin base foundation all

over the face with your favorite brush, damp sponge or even your fingers.

Then apply LA girl pro concealer under the eyes, and any discolored areas of

the face. Use the NYX wonder pencil to pinpoint any spots or blemishes, and

blend these out with your fingers.

Using the NYX contour palette, lightly contour with matte browns underneath

the cheekbones, around the outskirts of the face, and down the sides of the nose

(optional). Then sweep the shimmery highlight color, above the cheekbones

and create a thin, well blended line down the bridge of the nose, to achieve a

slim, sculpted face.

The rest of the face can be set with the matte nude shades from the palette.

2

Step 2: The Brows

Using Anastasia Beverlyhills dipbrow pomade in the

shade of your choice (I used blonde) outline the brows with

the shape you want to create. Fill in your brows starting

from the outer point inwards, and use a lighter hand once

you reach the inner section, in order for it to blend into

your natural brow color. Use a spooly to distribute the

product evenly through the hairs.

3 Step 3: Cut crease

Using a thin angled brush and Makeup Store’s Kakaw

shadow, create a defined “cut crease” shape in the natural crease

of the eye. Bring the cut crease into a flick that connects with

your lash line (this will make doing your eye liner much

more easy!)

Once you have a defined line, blend out the brown so that

you have a deep, smoky cut crease.


4

Step 4: Eye lids

To complete your cut crease eye shadow, apply NYX infinite

shadow stick to the bare area of the lid. Then brush NYX

baked shadow in moonshine on top, into the inner corner

of the eye, and beneath 5the brow bone for highlight.

Step 5: Cat Flicks

Using Eyeko eye do liner pen, follow the

flicked shape at the corner of the eye created with

the brown shadow in step 3, as a template

for your cat flicks. Then draw a thin line as close to

your lash

line as possible to

connect with the flicks.

6

7XANDER

Step 6: Flirty Lashes

Use Eyeko eye do mascara to add volume

to the top and bottom lashes. Then add on

“Scandal” wicked lashes by NYX, using Duo

lash glue on the lash band. Wait around a minute

for the glue to become tacky

before application.

Step 6: Pucker up!

To finish the look off, add Limecrime red velvet lip

lacquer (or your favorite red lipstick) to your lips for

a pop of bold color. If you slip up, don’t worry. Just

neaten the edges up with concealer! Finally, spray

on NYX matte setting spray, to keep you looking

shine and smudge free all day!

All About

That

Brow

Do you struggle to get those “on fleek” bold, ombre

brows you see all over instagram?

Well don’t worry, make-up artist Penelope Gwen has your back with this

step-by-step tutorial on how to

get the perfect brows.

You will need:

A pot of Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow pomade

This product comes in a selection of colours, from blonde to auburn.

Today, we’ll be using the shade “medium brown”.

A tube of Concealer

La Girl Pro conceal in the shade “natural”

Three Brushes

1 thin, stiff angled brow brush

1 flat concealer brush

1 (unused) mascara wand / spooly

From the Royal & Langnickel 12 piece brush set.


Start with a natural, shaped brow. Trim or pluck stray

hairs if needed.

Step 1

Using Anastasia Beverlyhills Dipbrow Pomade on an angled brush, outline

the outskirts of the brow with the shape you want to create.

Step 2

Loosely follow your natural line, but create a high arch 3/4th’s into your

brow, then finish with a sharp point at the end of the brow.

Leave the first 1/4th of your brow without product to give your brows

the ombre look.

Step 3

Step 4

Fill in the outer and lower parts of the brow with the

pomade, and start blending the product into the bulk of the

brows. This should be the darkest area of the brows.

Use a lighter hand once you start

blending into the inner brow.

Blend the product into the brow using the

product you have left on your brush.

hairs.

Use a spooly/ mascara wand to distribute

the product through the

Use only the spooly technique on the inner brow to keep

that area lighter than the rest.

Apply concealer to the outskirts of the brow to give a defined, sleek shape.

Step 5

This will allow you to correct any messiness of the dipbrow application,

and create a defined look.

Remember to blend out the concealer.

... and fin!

the finalists on Univision’s Nuestra Belleza

does to my confidence and motivation. I learned

so much while being on Nuestra Belleza Latina.

I am incredibly grateful for the experience and

opportunities that will now carry through my career.

They have given me the wings to fly high!

XM: How did it feel to be featured among People

en Espanol’s 50 most beautiful people? Do you

describe yourself as humble?

humbled and honored to have been a part of 50

NT: I started modeling roughly when I was 17.

Since then I discovered a passion for the world of

was the event?

NT: I considered my best-dressed moment to be

5 years from now. It will be my fate, dedication, and

hard work that will take me further.

XM: What projects or upcoming roles can we

expect from you this year?

NT: This year is looking very promising. There are

a number of prospective projects in the works that

of It's A Wig!
